Facebook: The Bishop was stunned.

Posted in Online by ldsym on October 13, 2008

I gave a fireside for a neighboring stake last night on New Media, we focused mostly on Facebook   It was a lot of fun.    The chapel was filled with youth.   I asked how many were on Facebook, a good 80 percent of the kids raised their hands!  This is an affluent, educated area, and I was thinking maybe half would raise their hands, but even I was shocked at the high number of kids who Facebook.

After the fireside I was talking to a local Bishop, he said he was stunned at how many kids raised their hands.   He said he has been considering getting on Facebook for a while and now, after seeing how pervasive it is,  was convinced he needed to do it now.

    Not at all surprising! When Pres Hinkley died, the youth of the church tweeted and facebooked it all over. No surprises.
